Οι Τρύπες ήταν ελληνικό ροκ συγκρότημα από την Νεάπολη Θεσσαλονίκης. Ο ιδιαίτερος ήχος τους, προερχόμενος από τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά του πυρήνα της μπάντας, δηλαδή από τα αναγνωρίσιμα φωνητικά και στίχους του τραγουδιστή Γιάννη Αγγελάκα, καθώς και από τις ιδιόμορφες συνθέσεις του μπασίστα Γιώργου Καρρά, ενέπνευσε πολλά σχήματα της εποχής και τους χάρισε μια θέση στο πάνθεον των πιο ποιοτικών και εμπορικά επιτυχημένων ελληνόφωνων ροκ σχημάτων.

Οι Bicycle ήταν αναμφισβήτητα το συγκρότημα που αναζητούσε (και κατάφερε) να ηγηθεί ο (μεγάλος) κιθαρίστας Θόδωρης Παπαντίνας Οι Bicycle δημιουργηθήκαν στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 80 στην Αθήνα και μέλη τους ήταν μερικοί από τους καλύτερους μουσικής της εποχής (και όχι μόνο): Θοδωρής Παπαντίνας -Κιθάρα, Φωνή, Στίλπων Νέστωρ - Κιθάρα, Βασίλης Παπαβασιλείου -Μπάσο και Ρούλης Πυρίλλης - Τύμπανα. Η μοναδική κυκλοφορία των Bicycle είναι το ομότιτλο άλμπουμ (σε ανεξάρτητη παραγωγή) που κυκλοφόρησε το 1981 από την Gramma (910) και στο οποίο όλες οι συνθέσεις είναι του Παπαντίνα. Στο άλμπουμ εκτός των Βιcycle συμμετείχαν οι Βαγγέλης Κουτσοτόλης (σαξόφωνο σε δυο κομμάτια) και ο Γιώργος Πεντζίκης (x- Fratelli). To Bicycle ηχογραφήθηκε εξολοκλήρου στο περίφημο studio Αγροτικόν υπό το οδηγίες του Νίκου Παπάζογλου. Ο ήχος του άλμπουμ είναι καθαρή και κλασικίζουσα κιθαριστική ροκ με τις ματιές στους Dire Straits και στους Stones να είναι κάτι παραπάνω από ορατές. Οι κριτικές της εποχής δεν ήταν και οι καlύτερες (το αντίθετο μάλιστα) και το άλμπουμ πέρασε τότε σχεδόν απαρατήρητο με αποτέλεσμα λίγο καιρό μετά την κυκλοφορία του οι Bicycle να διαλυθούν και να ακολουθήσουν διαφορετικές πορείες. Μερικά πράγματα για τον Παπαντίνα. Έχει περάσει από Μακεδονομάχους (με το Νίκο Παπάζογλου) την Εταιρεία Καλλιτεχνών (με τον Παύλο Σιδηρόπουλο) ενώ πρν μερικά χρόνια δημιούργησε τους Τ 4 Trouble. Ο Νέστωρ έχει περάσει και αυτός από την Εταιρεία Καλλιτεχνών ενώ μετά την διάλυση των bicycle δημιούργησε τους Rodondo Rocks. Ο Παπαβασιλείου υπήρξε μέλος των θρυλικών Olympians.

Aleka's Attic were an alternative folk/rock band from Gainesville, Florida, formed by River Phoenix and Josh Greenbaum in April, 1988. River's sister Rain would periodically attend a part of a rehearsal but officially joined about a year later. It is a common mistake that Rain started the band with River. Although she had sung along with River since they were young, she in fact, showed little interest during the first year or more of Aleka's Attic (prior to that name as well) when it was only River and Josh "Greene" (as he went by during that time) Greenbaum in the garage working on songs most of that first year plus.
